Less than a week to go until the Collection Conference

Next week will see local authorities, service providers and policymakers come together at the Collection Conference in Warwick, to debate the challenges of waste and recycling collections across the UK.

The conference will discuss service changes, vehicle developments, contamination rates and much more

Celebrating its fifth anniversary, letsrecycle.com’s one-day London Conference will take place in the luxurious sky suite at the British Motor Museum in Warwick.

It comes at a vital time for the industry, which is on the brink of the largest changes to legislation in a generation when rules around consistent collections are rolled out.

Presentations on the day will include updates from WRAP, Resource Futures and many more, with an opportunity to ask questions and network too.

Also discussed will be the sector outlook, the impact of contamination and consistency as well as service changes and vehicle developments.

The sessions will also explore a number of case studies from across London and beyond, on topics such as collection software, fortnightly service changes and food waste collections to enable visitors to learn best practice.

Additionally, there will be plenty of time for Q&A, knowledge sharing and networking.

Limited final tickets are available for £250 plus VAT and £160 plus VAT for local authorities. To view the full programme and secure your ticket click here.

Sponsors include Bartec, B&M Waste Services, CMS Supatrak, Hillend Engineering Group, Romaquip, Terberg Matec UK, Metrostor, Peter Ridley Waste Systems, Permiserv and Webaspx.


The day will open with a session painting a picture of the municipal waste sector. This will be chaired by letsrecycle.com’s Steve Eminton and feature presentations from Adam Herriot, plastics specialist at WRAP, John Coates, LARAC’s head of external affairs and John Woodruff, principal consultant in waste management at Ricardo Energy and Environment.

A session on contamination rates will follow, featuring Paul Thomas, waste contracts and strategy manager at Hull city council and Katherine Trott, policy, research and engagement officer at Fareham council. Also speaking will be Tim Hobbs, Bartec’s managing director and Abigail Mason, senior consultant to waste services optimisation at Resource Futures.

After lunch, service changes and vehicle developments will be discussed, followed by a panel debate on how to meet collection targets.
